Golf Tours in Scotland
Scotland is universally recognized as the “Home of Golf” and for any truly dedicated golfer, this is the ultimate destination to experience the very essence of the sport. It was along the coasts of Fife, East Lothian and Ayrshire where it all began over 600 years ago. Today, building on the legacy of those historic pioneers of the game; Old Tom Morris and James Braid, there are now over 550 courses across the country.
Scotland is most famous for its links courses. Open Championship venues such as Royal Troon, the Old Course, St Andrews, Muirfield, Carnoustie and Turnberry entice golfers from around the world and never fail to inspire and amaze. Top inland venues include Gleneagles – with its three courses, the King’s, Queen’s and PGA Centenary Course, which will host the Ryder Cup in 2014 – Blairgowrie, where Greg Norman won his first-ever European Tour title, Dalmahoy, a former Solheim Cup venue, and the Macdonald Cardrona.
In addition, there are a huge number of less well known “hidden gems”. Courses like The Carrick on Loch Lomond, Boat of Garten in the Cairngorms National Park or Kings Barns near St Andrews.
And what makes Scotland so special is that golf is accessible to everyone. You too can walk in the steps of all of golf’s greatest players.
But golf in Scotland is about more that just the sport. A Scottish golfing trip is about the friendliness of the people you meet, the flavour of the single malt whisky you enjoy in the bar after your round, the breathtaking scenery and sense of tradition.
